I have a new Windows 10 (64-bit) desktop, that I'm trying to shift approximately 20GB of data to from a LXLE laptop.
I have successfully connected them with a spare Cat-5 cable (success = positive ping tests to/from each machine)
I tried setting up a Samba share but it won't mount the folder in LXLE and when I try to map the drive in Windows it says it can't connect due to SMB1 protocol.
I've tried modifying the smb.conf file but did not achieve success - though I feel out of my depth doing that and am not confident that I did it right.
I've also tried Nitroshare (can't get machines to recognize inside the program). Couldn't get the alternative sharing programs to install successfully on both machines.
I shut off the firewalls temporarily to ensure they weren't the problem.
